County farmer, Bruce Moody, directed $2,500 to Steuben County Community Foundation (SCCF) through America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Bayer Fund. As part of their mission, Steuben County Community Foundation will use the funds to support nonprofits and community projects in Steuben County.
“SCCF is grateful for local community members like Bruce who believe in our mission and want to help make a difference in the community. This grant will help us support some of the most important needs that matter in Steuben County,” said Jennifer Danic, President and CEO of Steuben County Community Foundation.
Celebrating its 10th year, America’s Farmers Grow Communities partners with farmers to support nonprofit organizations strengthening rural communities. The program offers farmers the chance to direct a $2,500 donation to a nonprofit of their choice. It has awarded more than $33 million to over 8,000 nonprofits across rural America.
“A better life is Bayer’s goal. Farmers are invested in their communities, they root for their neighbors, and they know when and where there is a need,” said Al Mitchell, Vice President Corporate Engagement, Bayer. “Farmers are one of America’s best resources, which is why Grow Communities partners with them to direct donations to the organizations they are passionate about and that make a positive impact and a better life in communities.”
